Damian Moppett: Untitled Abstract Drawing in Space

March 17, 2020 - January 1, 2025

The Art Gallery of Alberta commissioned Canadian artist Damian Moppett to create an installation for long-term display in the AGA Atrium. This work is intended to be a scaled-up sketch that occupies the space in the AGA’s atrium as if it was drawn in the air. Shapes and lines are fabricated out of cut aluminum plate, which have been arranged and painted to recreate a ‘fast’ artistic abstract drawing. Moppett’s recent large-scale public sculptures have all been centred around the idea of making a relatively ‘quick’ drawing or painting into a large three-dimensional sculpture while still trying to convey the immediate graphic simplicity of the original drawing or painting. This work will maintain the qualities of a sketch with drawing materials and blow them up to architectural or larger-than-life scale.
